Share with Fellow Sports Fans!

Round 1 of the NBL22, and it was good to see the NBL’s newest team, the Tasmanian JackJumpers in action. They were impressive on opening night and managed to pull off an impressive overtime win over Brisbane.

Other winners for Round 1 included the Wildcats with two wins, the Phoenix, Adelaide and the Sydney Kings all won their opening matches.

Here are the NBL Fantasy Scores for Round 1 of NBL 22.


Tasmania JackJumpers vs Brisbane Bullets

Tasmania 83 – Brisbane 74 (Overtime)

(JackJumpers by 9 Points)

Tasmania got the fast start against the Bullets, and it looked like Josh Magette was going to end up with a massive score in the early stages. However, he quietened down in the second half, but fellow guard Josh Adams stepped up to help them win the match.

Nathan Sobey hit a three in the closing stages to force overtime for the Bullets, and a double-double from former Washington State import Robert Franks was an impressive NBL Debut.

Perth Wildcats vs Adelaide 36ers

Perth 85 – Adelaide 73

(Wildcats by 12 Points)

The 36ers challenged the Wildcats in Perth, but the Wildcats new import and former Brisbane Bullets Big man kept pouring in the points. Vic Law dropped 37 points in the win but didn’t get a lot of boards which impacted his Fantasy Score. Luke Travers also impressed with 7 Rebounds and a few steals, and Majok Majok may become the number one rebounder at the Wildcats.

There were no real Standouts at the 36ers, but Mitch McCarron’s fantasy score would suggest otherwise, and Cam Bairstow was impressive off the bench.

South East Melbourne Phoenix vs New Zealand Breakers

South East Melbourne 89 – New Zealand 65

(Phoenix by 24 Points)

In this match, the Phoenix were on, and the Breakers looked a little disinterested at times.

It was the Xavier Munford show for the Phoenix, and he racked up 27 Points, 7 Rebounds and 5 Assists. Munford has the green light to be aggressive on the offensive end, and he capitalized on the opportunity.

Because of the Phoenix depth this season, Mitch Creek may not feature as heavily as previous seasons in terms of Rebounds and Assists. The NBL Fantasy scoring system is heavily weighted towards rebounds, and Creek does settle for many mid-range jump shots. Not pulling down rebounds and the lost point for a missed mid-range jump shot makes him a questionable choice at this stage. He did still score 22 points and had a significant impact.

The Breakers struggled in this game, but Finn Delany led the way with 18 Points and 9 Rebounds.

Adelaide 36ers vs Illawarra Hawks

Adelaide 71 – Illawarra 81

(Hawks by 10 Points)

The defensive intensity of the Brian Goorjian led Illawarra Hawks was on in Adelaide, and the 36ers struggled after their trip to Perth. The Illawarra guards were on in this match, and we saw some of the elite skills of former Memphis Grizzly Xavier Rathan-Mayes throughout the win.

The 36ers were disappointing in this clash, but Cam Bairstow was a shining light off the bench.

Sydney Kings vs Melbourne United

Sydney 79 – Melbourne 74

(Kings by 5 Points)

The Kings and United went at it on a Sunday and led for most of the contest. Melbourne United came back late, but it wasn’t enough.

Not a lot of heavy Fantasy Scoring in this one, but the skills of new Kings import Jaylen Adams were on show, and Caleb Agada showed he could be an elite defender.

Perth Wildcats vs Cairns Taipans

Perth 90 – Cairns 67

(Wildcats by 23 Points)

The final match of Round 1 and the Taipans hung around in Perth, but were no match for a Bryce Cotton led Perth Wildcats outfit.

Cotton dropped 31 Points in this game and dished off 5 Assists to cause many headaches for the Taipans defence.

Luke Travers again pulled down a lot of rebounds, and Wildcats bench big man Oliver Hayes-Brown had an impact in limited minutes.

For the Taipans, Tahjere McCall was impressive in his first match and Stephen Zimmerman registered a double-double. Scott Machado might need to think about putting the jump shot away, as he was 1/12 from the land of plenty.
